Aldi to create nearly 4,000 jobs in 2020
Aldi has said it will have created nearly 4,000 UK jobs this year as it looks to open an average of one new store a week between now and Christmas.
The supermarket said it has already added 2,800 new permanent jobs to its workforce in 2020 and will create around 1,200 more.
Aldi is planning to launch new stores in towns and cities such as Sandhurst, Bristol and Edinburgh as well as other locations up and down the country. It currently operates 890 UK shops but is aiming to increase this to 1,200 by 2025. Each new store creates an average of 30 jobs.
Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK, said: “As much as the disruption of the past few months has been challenging, it has also reminded us that there are still hundreds of towns across the UK where shoppers don’t have access to Aldi’s award-winning quality products and unbeatable prices.
“I’ve been very proud of the tireless work my colleagues have put into feeding the nation. To continue doing this and meet our goals of making Aldi accessible to even more shoppers, we will need thousands more amazing colleagues across the country.”
